HOUSTON, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its President and CEO, Stuart Bradie, was named to the prestigious 2019 list of "CEOs Who 'Get It'" by the National Safety Council.
In his 4 1/2 years as CEO, Bradie has introduced, built and cultivated a pervasive Zero Harm culture at KBR where every employee believes that zero incidents is achievable and works toward that goal every day. The Zero Harm mentality is all encompassing with employees accepting responsibility for Zero Harm to themselves, their colleagues, the environment as well as their homes and families.
Since the introduction of Zero Harm, KBR's Total Recordable Incident Rate has dropped by a best-in-class 54% while the number of Zero Harm days per year and safety related leading indicator activities have increased dramatically. Each day KBR employees and contractors collectively work about 500,000 hours, many of them in harsh and dangerous environments. In 2018, they achieved Zero Harm a best-in-class 82% of their days.
"I am extremely proud to be included on this list, representing the more than 34,000 KBR professionals who earned this accomplishment," Bradie said. "Every day they approach their jobs and their lives with the safety of themselves and those around them foremost in their minds and I could not be more proud of them."
Bradie was one of eight CEOs from national and international organizations to receive the annual recognition presented to leaders who go above and beyond to protect employees both on and off the job. The National Safety Council recognizes honorees that have built a safety strategy using four key components: leadership and employee engagement, safety management solutions, risk reduction and performance measurement.
"These leaders understand that safety is the cornerstone of every world-class business," said Nick Smith, interim president and CEO of the National Safety Council. "They have set a standard for their peers and colleagues, and we are proud to recognize their efforts."
A Q&A with Bradie is featured in the February 2019 issue of Safety+Health magazine.
